FRIDAY, JUNE 9, 1905.
Nan Patterson has quit the stage.
She vwas disgusted with the little in
terest and the small audience which
she was capable o-f attracting. and
has gone back .home. Her excuse,
however, is that the other members
of the company were so tough that
the public refased to patronize it.
The Greenville News is mistaken
in stating that the meeting of the
Grand Lodge of the Knights ot
Pythias, at which the Grenwood
Journal charges that the candidacy
of Hon. 'M. L. Smith for governor
was launched, was held at Newberry.
The meeting was in Beaufort. Our cj
temporary may be just as far off the
mark in its prediction that Mr. Smih
will not -be elected governor.
Senator McLa-rin in his speech be
fore the farmers in the meeting at
Greenville the other day. denounced
the dispensary very severely. We
agree wi:h the Greenville News. that
while the senator made a good speech
to the farmers, and no dou-bt.. his
jumping on the dispensary pleased a
good many people, it..would have been
better to have left the dispensary
part of his speech for some other
occasion. No doubt zhat part of his
speech was very -pleasing to' some
people. and it may be. as the News
predicts. the popular wave in this
state, but it should be divorced from
the meetings called in the -interest 'of
the farmers' movement.
We publish -in another column the
text of the Brice bill as it passed the
legislature at the session of 1904. so
that every one may know the pro
visions as to calling and holding elec
tion for voting on the dispensary.
Several people have asked us about its
provisions and in order to answer all
such inquiries the act itself is printed.
If the election is to be held we de
sire to see a fair and full expression
from the people of the county on the
question. We want everybody to -keep
cool and not get excited and what
ever the majority decides everybody
can acquise in with more, grace if
the fight pro and con is conducted in
the right spirit. Newiberry has been
a dispensary county. The anti-dis
pensary .'people claim that if a vote~
can be taken it will be voted out.
That remains to be seen, of course.
-Whie the bankers deserve .credit
for helping us- this year, still I warn'
the farmer that the best bank for him
to draw.. upon is his corn crib and
smoke house. - With your* supplies
raisedat hiome ;you will :be. indepj.nd
ent and can hold your cotton,.until
you can get youir . own price..- You
want individual strenrgth and.. -ypu
nmust attain this at home. -Get stron-g
as individuals and tlhen our organi
zation is a success.
The above is taken fro~m a report of
Mr. Harvie Jordan's speech as pub
lished in the Greenville Herald. The
speech was made to the farmers .of
Greenville county. It is good doe
trine bu the same that The Herald
and News has been preaching for the
past twenty years.
If the farmers will follow this adv~ice
there will be no need of farmers' -or
ganmzations 'or anything of that
kind but each farmer will. be able to
work Out his own salvation.
We would not be* understood as
opposing the organizafion - of>-~the
farmers. This is a day o~f organiza
tion and the farnmers should unite for
their own protection, but until the
farmers of this section raise their own
supplies-diveirsify their crops-and
make cotton a surplus they will not
We have not the figures at thand
but we venture to say th'at there are.
several hundred dollars worth of cu
cumber pickles sold in Florence alone
in a year. We are sure that except
for the few housewives who put up a
iar or two of pickles for home use
that there are no pickles put up here
where cucumbers grow like weeds. It
wvould require mighty little capital to
buy ame kegs anrd some salt and p:t
up these pickles here where they are
raised and where fully as many are
thrown away every year as are bought
by the merchants and resold to the
people. That is getting rich fast.
What is true of Florence is equally
true of Newberry. It is very little
trouble to raise cucumbers and very
little work to make pickles of them.
Another crop that grows very easi
lv in Newberry is Irish potatoes and
one acre properly tended in Irish po
tatoes will yield more clear money
than the same acre planted in cotton.
In driving a short distance in the
country recently we saw several acres
in one patch of Irish potatoes and
they were looking well.
Then we can grow fine tomatoes
in this county and they are good in a
great many ways. Some of our farm
ers are already growing them and
operating their own canneries.
Diversified farming is w.hat our
farniers need in .his stat, and the

press with a capacity of 24.000 papers

glad to see this evidence of the
awvakening of the city of Charleston.
The Evening Post has also put in a
new and faster press. We congratu

-ressiveness and hope they may both
live long and continue to prosper.
If the News and Courier would only

the- news for it oftener. With the

and we have no doubt they are, there
is a better way to close tip the dis

election. Just let all of them stop

there will be no need of an election

Smith and Pythians.
Tihe Newberry Observer says:
"The Greenwood Journal, which is
in the habit of seeing spooks, says
that M. L. Smith is the candidate of
the Knights of Pythias and that -the
gubernatorial boom of the said Smith
was launched at Beaufort during the
recent session of the grand lod|ge
there. It further says that the dis
pensary forces are for him. Well,
we hope the Knights of Pythias and
the kniglhts of the G. M. I. haven't'
formed a coalition."
The Greenwood Journal' did noti
itself make the statements referred to.
but quoted an unnamed person who
was in Beaufort at the time of the
convention. Until this person is
named the Journal 'must bear the en
tie :responsibility for the reports
We do not believe that,Mr. Smith
or any o:her man is tihe candidate of
the .Pythians and we doubt the claim
thate the dispensary favors him.
Statements of this kind made in
a generi way are unfair. The Jour
nal cannot possibly prove what it has
We suppose that some Knights of
Pythias may support Colonel Smith
(e take it for granted that he is .a
Colonel' like other men of fame) and
some may even support him on ac
count of an acquaintance formed in
th.e Pythian lodge and grand lodge.
These are mighty good places for the
forming of respectable acquaintance
But we assert that Knights of Py
ihias will support no candidates mere
ly because they are Pythians. Some
times though, mighty good Pythians
are mighty good candidates and some
of the best candidates we have ever
seen were unregenerate and hardened
The Journal of Greenwood has done
Colonel Brother Smith an injustice

\Ve know a number of Knights of
Pythias who have never been elected
governor. Others have been elected

Colonel Smit;h has much to his ad
